maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach(to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;


and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing
bubbles:and

may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.


for whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea
